VICKSBURG, Mich. — Vicksburg Community Schools will provide multiple options for learning this upcoming fall, the district announced Wednesday.

Families will be able to choose between online and in-person learning options.

The first day of school is Aug. 31.

“We are excited to welcome our students and staff back to our campuses and appreciate our employees’ commitment to providing a safe and effective learning environment for all students, whether in-person or online,” Superintendent Keevin O’Neill said. “We listened closely to the feedback we received, consulted with public health officials and made sure our plans comply with state guidelines and those of the Centers for Disease Control. We will continue to transparently address any concerns to assure that all stakeholders have the most current information.”

Families need to inform the district which option they’ll be going with by Aug. 21.

Final details of the plan will be released Friday.
